White Collar Prison? More like Brown Boxer Prison. What a stinky situation out of Missouri… Continue reading
In honor of tonight’s Home Run Derby (which shouldn’t even count since Cleveland’s hometown boy Derek Dietrich isn’t in it despite Christian Yelich bowing out due to a back injury), I thought it might be nice to look back at the only good thing that has happened in Cincinnati sports in the last 5 years. 2015 doesn’t feel like it was that long ago, but looking back at the highlights of Todd Frazier’s insane final round of the Home Run Derby in front of the hometown Cincinnati crowd reminds me how sad our sports lives have been since that July evening.
The Reds traded Todd Frazier to the White Sox after the 2015 season, but The Toddfather will forever be royalty in Cincinnati for what happened on Monday, July 13, 2015. Continue reading
Throughout the 2019 season, the Cincinnati Reds will be wearing a series of throwback uniforms to commemorate their 150th Anniversary and being the birthplace of professional baseball. Each weekend during a home series, the Reds will wear the uniforms from a different era to put their rich baseball history on display. Along with the Reds’ celebration, I will be reviewing and providing thoughts on each uniform throughout the season.
I’m not gonna lie. The 1936 Palm Beach Alternates are putting my mind in an absolute pretzel. As a uniform purist, I want to vomit. But as someone who loves quirky things and weird moments in history, I love these. Even if they might look like a jersey a fastpitch softball team would wear.
Call me crazy but I don’t think the red pants are gonna be as forgiving to Anthony DeSclafani on the mound today.. Continue reading
Today’s loss sucked. Everyone’s saying it. The Reds got a great 7-inning performance out of Luis Castillo where he only allowed one run on three hits and put the home team in a great position to win the second in a three game series in front of a sellout crowd. I don’t know why so many Reds fans were wearing blue, but it was a sellout nonetheless despite the brutal heat. Continue reading
If you’ve never watched Trailer Park Boys, you’re missing out. It’s pretty much The Office only it’s about deviants in a Canadian trailer park instead of 9-5ers at a paper company. One of the main characters, Ricky, is well known for getting popular sayings or colloquialisms wrong. Some of my most used phrases come from Ricky.
“Getting two birds stoned at once”
“Worst case Ontario”
“I fucking atodaso”
Maybe someday if you’re nice, I’ll post a picture of my Ricky costume from Halloween a few years ago. But until then, you can “make like a tree and fuck off.”Follow @BennyMacBlog
When weighing in on the Tyreek Hill situation on Kansas City radio, Kevin Kietzman had this to say: Continue reading
This is actually pretty hilarious. I’m kinda in a grey area when it comes to the shift. I don’t hate it, but I also think it’s getting out of control in some aspects. Plays like this make me wish the Reds had the nuts or wherewithal to do something like this. We’ve all seen them try to lay down bunts, and it’s not pretty. To ask them to do this would be like asking me to go five minutes without looking at my phone. It’s not gonna happen so quit asking. Continue reading
